MetaMask had some blowback from the cryptoverse recently on news coming out about collecting IP addresses, but it looks like they might reversing course, sort of. In a statement, Consensys clarified their position on IP collection and an amendment to their policy:

We retain and delete user data such as IP address and wallet address pursuant to our data retention policy. We are working on narrowing retention to 7 days and we will append these retention policies to our privacy policy in an upcoming update..[ ]

Will this ease the privacy-minded portion of users’ minds? Doubtful, because any retention period still means…”we collect information”. The scary part is, how many other entities will follow suit?
